Outstanding classic country

I was surprised to see this here, but it turns out to be an iTunes exclusive CD. This really is a rare treat-- a classic star from the Hank Williams era (they were roomates for awhile) recorded live. If you only know Ray Price from more contemporary easy listening radio, you should check out his early career. He had a string of hits in the early 50s, and by the time of these recordings (57 - 63) he was at the top of his game. These live recordings sound fantasic (although mono as you might expect). The band is top notch, and Price is in fine voice. The song selection covers some of his very best material from the era (although I miss Heartaches By The Number). Price's voice is somewhere between the powerful rawness of Hank Williams and the more sophisticated croon of the coming Nashville Sound. Fiddle and steel, two-step shuffle, harmony vocals, and pure honky-tonk songs-- this is country music from one of it's finest periods, and there just aren't enough live recordings like this available. I hope this marks a new series of releases from the Country Music Foundation.

Great music, great art
